Varsity Basketball Advances to City Championship Game
Sunday, February 25, 2018 – Playing in the City Championship semi-finals yesterday, La Salle’s varsity basketball team (21-2) defeated Moore Catholic 49-48 on a buzzer beater by Korey Williams. Trailing throughout much of the game, the Cardinals would take a brief five-point lead in the third quarter before Moore would storm back to take a one-point lead entering the fourth quarter. Trailing by three points with 55 seconds to go, the Cardinals would use their trademark defense to cause a turnover that led to a Tyler Cambrelen lay-up, eventually setting up the final play with eight seconds remaining when Korey Williams would rebound a Josiah Chandler miss and put it back as time expired. Korey would lead the Cardinals with 19 points while Josiah Chandler added 16 points and Tyler Cambrelen chipped in 8 points.
With the victory, the team’s 21st of the season, the Cardinals will play for the City Championship on Friday at Fordham University vs. rival Regis at 6pm.
